FireChek Valves with Quick Exhaust

When the standard FireChek® valve does not vent the air fast enough for a quick return to the failsafe position, it can be combined with a quick exhaust valve that increases the exhaust Cv significantly.

Installation

FireChek® valves with Quick Exhaust install easily between the pneumatic supply and spring return actuator via 1/4" NPT threaded connections.
